it was all a dream

Bibliofilly is having trouble adjusting to reality again. Vacation really took me out of myself - in a good way, for the most part - but now the realization that work, and life, await me Monday is making the pink cloud disappear somewhat.

Amid all the excitement of hosting my niece, which was a delightful week indeed, I had a little fender-bender yesterday that tore open a front panel of my car, rendering it undriveable (well, if I want to drive safely). The repair will probably cost more than the car is worth. Is it necessary to have it totally refurbished, or can I stand to drive a mashed-in car with the dangerous parts bent into a safer shape until such time as I can afford to replace it? Poor baby Kia! That car is my whole independence!

Bibliofilly needs to curl up on the couch in the fetal position and contemplate what's next.

I'm just glad you came out of it unscathed! Stay off NJ roads as much as you can...there's a whole lot of jackasses out there.

Was your niece with you? Are you (both) alright?
How bad is it? did you get estimates yet?
There's a pretty good repair shop I used in bridgewater. I can give you the number etc.

OW! I do hope you and Angela are ok? I'm so sorry about the car! If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you a faux green dress and a car.

I'm fine, my niece is fine, the car is not so fine! But the damage looked worse the other day, when I was still shaken up and panicky. You know how some people come out swinging and aggressive when they have stress? Not me. I crumple up like Kleenex and everything is terrible.

Still, I plan to go tomorrow to a guy in Green Brook someone recommended and see what the damage is...hopefully they can do an estimate this week. The good news: I get to roll up to the reunion in a different set of (rented) wheels. Should I get the Mustang?

Karen: thanks for the Barenaked Ladies that song is stuck in my head...

Andre: this happened in Staten Island. Oy!
